We stayed at a two bedroom villa in Kidani Village during spring break season, April 15th through April 22, 2011. The villa itself was very nice, with very comfortable beds. Housekeeping cleaned the room daily, and they did this early in the day. It was very quiet here because this accommodation is the farthest from the Disney parks. Regardless, the buses did come at least every 20 minutes, and we never had a long wait to go anywhere. Now the negatives. Others have mentioned that this resort is very poorly lit. That is correct. The lighting is very poor in both the hallways, in the lobby and in the villas. I asked different staff at the front desk multiple questions regarding multiple things such as tours around the hotel, etc. I found the staff at the front desk to be VERY UNHELPFUL AND UNINFORMED of just about everything. And, as far as room service goes, there is NO SERVICE at all! Most of the time, you cannot get them to answer the phone. I had to go through the front desk staff and speak with the "duty manager" to even attempt to place an order. Even so, orders took at least an hour to come and all arrived cold and incorrect. I should mention that the food was sub-mediocre. Additionally, there is NOTHING on this menu that would interest children. There are no french fries at Kidani! The pool is nice, but too small for the number of guests. There were NEVER enough lounges.
If I ever return to Disney World, I would not stay here, especially with children. This place is just not worth the money!
